Meaning that if you’re learning Korean, you can learn the language in a totally fun, unconventional way. Binge-watching TV shows! You’ll be able to hit multi-hour goals on a daily basis once you find videos that actually interest you.

Now, I know that Netflix for Language Learning, and YouTube for language learning are both already quite popular mediums for finding foreign language videos. But did you known Amazon Prime Video– a subscription you’re probably already paying for– also offers thousands of videos just waiting to be watched?

That’s right; if you’re already an Amazon Prime member who takes advantage of the services’ free shipping, regular deals, and music, then why not also benefit from the approximately 100,000 videos offered through Amazon? These videos are 100% free with your subscription.

As much as I love both Netflix and YouTube, it’s no secret that Amazon is taking over the online world. And as a language learner, it’s a platform you almost can’t afford to go without. But if you’re not already a member, and still looking to watch some of the killer videos listed below, then Try Amazon Prime’s 30-Day Free Trial.

If you’re not learning Korean and/or learning yet another language, Amazon Prime Video offers video content in 60 languages. Here’s the list, followed by the quantity of videos:

So you’ve got your pick of the litter my friend. The videos listed below are all produced with Korean audio, and only Korean audio. I’m pretty sure all of the offer English subtitles though, so don’t worry about not being able to understand them.

These TV shows and movies have all been rated well and received positive reviews. Because trust me– I don’t want you to waste you’re time anymore than you don’t. The list is numbered but the order doesn’t correspond with how good the video is. I place equal weight on all of the videos.

So get your popcorn and language learning notebook ready; cause it’s time to get comfortable.
